Let’s learn how to make the southside cocktail, this recipe should be included in your bartending 101 books–it’s an easy gin cocktail that has flavor and heritage.
Perhaps it’s the “mojito of the gin category” or this can be considered its own drink, along side other such greats. It’s a variation of a gin sour, no doubt but brings along with it some lemon citrus (instead of the typical lime). Later, we’ll see a recipe that could be slightly confused with this one known as the Chicago South Side cocktail, which is a completely different drink.
Bartending 101 suggests, you should know this recipe incase people order it, it’s like a gin mojito and fits a good summer time theme. If you need a nice summer time southside cocktail, this recipe may work for you–it’s sour enough, has a nice fresh mint backbone and fits the classic southside recipe needs.
1 1⁄2 oz / 50 ml American Gin
3⁄4 oz / 25 ml Fresh Lemon Juice
1⁄2 oz / 15 ml Simple Syrup
8 Mint Leaves
